Wisconsin Badgers Add Jahcobi Neath From Transfer Portal

Jahcobi Neath, who played at Wake Forest but entered the transfer portal, has committed to play for Greg Gard and the Wisconsin Badgers.

Neath gives UW some much needed experience at point guard, something that is needed with D’Mitrik Trice moving on.

Neath was originally a 3-star recruit from Toronto, joins freshman Lorne Bowman and Chucky Hepburn as potential replacements for Trice.

Jahcobi Neath had a solid freshman season two years ago under Danny Manning. He played in 30 games, averaging 5.3 points and 2.2 assists per game while shooting 48 percent from beyond the arc.

Manning was fired after that season, but Neath decided to stay at Wake Forest to play under new coach Steve Forbes last season.

Neath struggled playing under Forbes and couldn’t find the same success as he had in year one. Neath averaged 3.8 points and 1.7 assists per game, while his shooting percentage dropped to 22.2 percent from 3-point range.
